Regina police first got a call from the Pasqua hospital about an 18-year-old man coming in with a gunshot wound at 6:11 a.m. He had been walking near Eighth Avenue and Cameron Street Monday morning when a man got out of a vehicle and shot him. He made it home on foot and was taken to the hospital by a family member. Police say his injuries were not critical.
